That old chestnut, I'm afraid... colour. Colour is obviously a very subjective thing, but I've narrowed it down to either Silver or Phantom Black. I was always going to go with black (my previous S3 was Ebony Black) but annoyingly, silver has come up on the rails from nowhere to throw me into confusion just as I'm on the cusp of making a final decision. I'm starting to think that perhaps silver is the way to go because it shows off the lines of the car better, the S3 publicity brochure clearly suggests it was the colour Audi thinks shows it off best, and it's the Audi racing colour (thinking R8/R10 here) .... but then, I wonder whether silver is too lacking in contrast with the S3 wheels, grille and ally mirrors, is too bland and nondescript, and even too common nowadays? Perhaps, all these things considered, I should stick with the mean, moody and stealthy look of black...? I'm back to square one, so I would be interested to hear the reasoning of those who have faced the same dilemma, and what the factors were that clinched it one way or the other. Should it be back to Black or is it time for a change to a Silv3r Arrow?
